Let’s face it, we’re living in an increasingly digital world. Even toddlers are walking around with Instagram on their smart phones. In theory this should make us the communication generation. But we’re not. Check out these great texting fails for proof!
It doesn't matter which way we spin it; breaking up stinks. (Unless, of course, you're the breaker-upper, in which case it's like a cause for celebration.) Either way, cutting the relationship cord has gotten a bit easier ever since text messaging hit the scene. As it turns out, break up texts can be hilarious.
Have you ever seen somebody share their phone number publicly (on Craigslist maybe, or one of those homemade ads for "computer lessons" on the subway) and thought to yourself "I should totally prank this guy"? You haven't? Oh, uh ... neither have we. Ever. Clearly -- we're not monsters. But the person behind Textastrophe is!
Maybe you thought your thumbs were fast, and you could pop out text messages at remarkable speeds. Well, perhaps you should think again. A 16-year-old New Yorker was just awarded the top prize for the second year in a row at the LG US National Texting Competition.
Statistics show that 80 percent of college students engage in sexting, and a quarter of women in the more cougarish age bracket of 35-44 do it, too. That’s a whole lot of sexytalk flying around for free — until now. Welcome to paid phone sex for the modern age.

I have no idea what this news story is about. The audio is so low, that it's nearly impossible to understand anything that the reporter is saying. But what he's saying isn't important because the best part of this video is what happens in the background. Watch closely, and remember, no texting while walking.
In recent years, study after study has raised the alarm about the dangers of talking on the phone while driving, with some saying you could be four times as likely to have a crash if you’re using a phone behind the wheel.
But new research indicates it may have been much ado about nothing.
Buckle your seat belts, folks.
According to Harris Poll chairman Humphrey Taylor regarding a new survey, “The number of drivers who engage in potentially dangerous, in some cases extremely dangerous, behaviors while driving is terrifyingly high.”
According to a survey of 2,227 adults by the Pew Research Center, the average text message user sends or receives an average of 41.5 messages a day.
How much someone texts is not surprisingly tied to how old they are. Those in the 18-to-29 age group send or receive an average of 87.7 texts a day, whereas that total is only 4.7 for those in the 65-and-over group.
